51 y/o male is working with a mortar tube when the thing misfires... What does he do you ask? He looks into the tube and the thing fires, blowing off a quarter of his head. Male found agonal, massive head trauma / brain mater exposed and a blown pupil. Male codes upon transfer to the squad and A.C.L.S. is preformed due to the family being hysterical / saftey to get off scene (all drunk I think). Pronounced dead @ shock trauma. For all new civilian medics out there...Blast injuries DO happen and you must be prepared to deal with it. Have a good one.
